I cam accross cloud 9 fabrics and was immediately hooked by there friendly emails .. cute website and super fabrics - they are due to arrive here in September(ish) - I for one are very excited .. check out the pics and see what you think 

All dyes are OEKO TEX certified, the benefits of which include: no heavy metals or toxic substances; 

have a higher absorption rate which creates less waste water runoff; require less energy, salt and alkali 

in the application and fixation; and the water can be recycled for reclaiming the dye that is not used.

Our imported goods are made of 100% GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified organic cotton 

fibers grown, harvested, and printed in India, one of the leaders in the organic cotton movement.
